Making a diorama is a fun and easy way to extend the activities in Journey to Cloud City beyond the pages and into hours of open-ended imaginative play. Even without the book, this activity is a great family crafting opportunity, and you can create your own stories and challenges to accompany the diorama. In this example, we’ll be showing the creation of a forest-swamp diorama, but you can create whatever environment you like!

Special thanks to all the friends, parents, kids, and believers that have helped bring this adventure to life.
